“Father, Not My Will, Thine”         


Don Fortner


(Tune: Am I A Soldier of The Cross? #441   CM)



Father, my paths, winding and straight,

       Your watchful eye surveys.

       There’s none so wise to choose my lot

       And regulate my ways.



I cannot doubt Your tender love -

       Eternal, changeless, kind!

       To Your unerring, gracious will

       My life I now resign.



My God is good in all He gives,

       And good when He denies.

       Even the sorrows caused by Him

       Are blessings in disguise!



Gladly I bow before Your throne

       With all that I call mine

       And say with Christ, Your darling Son,

     “Father, not my will, Thine!”
